Is he still active on HF? When was the last time Ecklund actually posted something on HF?
Whether that's why he made an account or not, the same rules apply. There is, however, no rule that states; a member of the media can not create an account on HF for the sole purpose of stopping his name from being ridiculed. His rumors do all the ridiculing for itself. While I can see where Neo is coming from, as I have been there before with Eklund's "sources", the rules must still be enforced here.

There's a difference between me saying; "His rumours are so full of crap." and "Eklund is a lying piece of garbage." Obviously, the second one won't fly.
